Ok! Yeah yesterday I just drove a manual for the first time and was a little terrified 😂.
It's easy to get the hang of, if you have someone teaching you properly. I feel like learning manual gives you a better understanding of how to drive, even if you take the test on an automatic.
Driving I general, safety, or anything else that could help a beginner driver like me.
Pay attention is the biggest one. It's a hard habit to get into, but taking a look around your car is a good idea before a dive, just making sure your tires look inflated and not bald, and making sure there isn't some obvious damage somewhere. Make sure your mirrors are in a good position for you, have a family member or a friend stand in differentspots around and away from the car so you can tell where your blind spots are. Starting out, don't play music too loud, don't eat, don't be on your phone, and limit drinking (as in regular drinking obviously zero alcohol). Drive as much as possible in areas with less people if you can.Give a little bit more room between the car in front of you than you think you need, some people may use that extra room as an excuse to pull in in front of you, but that's ok, better to let someone in than ride someone's ass.Obey the speed limits, I personally speed a lot, but I shouldn't, and starting out driving when you aren't as comfortable it can be even more dangerous.Take a few minutes before leaving to take a look at you're route until you're more comfortable.
"Give a little bit more room between the car in front of you than you think you need, some people may use that extra room as an excuse to pull in in front of you, but that's ok, better to let someone in than ride someone's ass.". I agree. Assholes will be assholes. But don't mind them. Be the better person. Take the high road.

Yeah! Both times my dad and me got hit it was from a woman on her smartphone 😕
Other than that, don't ever speed 10 over the limit (and be even more careful if you have strict cops in your area.)
And don't tailgate. And don't occupy the left lane. And watch out for motorcycles. And watch out for pedestrians downtown.
What if your on the highway and the right lane is for slower traffic and there is not anyone close to you in front of you and behind you. Then would you stay in the left hand lane?
No; you would stay in the right lane. Why would you stay in the left lane?
In Montana I think usually the left hand lane on a interstate is the lane were cars go faster on and can pass other cars
@ZaneGoicovich. And why are they able to pass other cars?Answer: Because there is space to do it.Think about it. If people were driving in the left lane, how would anyone ever be able to pass?
Like if you were in a 2 lane on the highway there were 2 lanes going the same way. And you can pass. I heard people can be on the left side and those people go faster than the right. In a 2 lane that we’re going opposite ways that wouldn’t be possible
@ZaneGoicovich They only go faster as long as everyone is going faster. But if the one in the front slows down but stays in the left lane and blocks it,... well, no one is going anywhere then. #trafficjam
Oh ok that makes sense, thank you!
No prob! 👍🙂
Ok, yeah my dad told me to expect everyone else to screw up.
Yap dad got it. and just take your time you will do great
Ok! Thank you so much. Yesterday I drove a manual for a tiny bit and and scary how you can look in your mirrors and look again and then the second you sent some car or pedestrian is right behind you.
